Fun Game For Learning Guitar On iPad

Wild Chords makes learning to play the guitar easy, fun and motivating. A real guitar is required to play the game. We are so glad we discovered this really fun app! Great for kids.

Wild Chords is a casual music learning game, suitable for beginners of all ages. It teaches you the most popular chords, and also includes melody and scale exercises for lead guitar playing. The game is played with a real guitar (acoustic or electric), and requires no additional equipment to be played. The iPad recognizes each chord and note you play, and tells you whether you’re playing right or wrong.

To play the first exercises you don’t need any previous guitar experience. Master one level, and you unlock the next one. The following levels are just slightly harder than the previous ones, so you can pass them after a few tries as your skills improve. Some of the final exercises (Demo package) are hard enough to even get guitar teachers to sweat!

Ovelin city has been taken over by escaped zoo animals. Fortunately, the animals can be hypnotized with guitar music, and then lured out of the city (“Modern Pied piper of Hamelin”). Now it’s your task to help Giuseppe save Ovelin city. It’s fun, challenging, and the best thing is, you really learn to play the guitar!

Our vision is to make the world a more musical place, and help people to learn to play a music instrument. Please let us know what you think about WildChords, and if you have any feedback.
– We want to hear the good, the bad and the ugly
– What doesn’t work, whats not fun, where did you have difficulties
– What ideas do you have, what wishes (for exercises, features, visuals,…)
– Please also tell us about your success moments with Wildchords, we love to hear those!
– If you dislike the game, please tell us why, so we can improve it. Please don’t give 1-star ratings if you already are a good guitar player and find the levels too easy, or if you don’t have a guitar at all to play the game.

What’s New in Version 1.5

– Screen rotation support added
– Five new free exercises

What’s New in Version 1.7
– All songs included in the main product (no in-app purchases anymore)
– Startup fix (if app wouldn’t start -> switch iPad to airplane mode before starting the game)
– Log-in removed (just start and play)
– Audio performance improvement


Jammit Music Lessons App For iPad

Jammit Music Lessons On iPad

Jammit is a really cool app for learning instrument parts from your favorite songs. You can choose from Standard and Tab notation. They’ve licensed 300 songs so far from actual record labels. They also got the real multitrack sessions so what you’re learning from and listening to are the real deal. It’s not out yet but stick around to find out more.

Jam with your favorite bands…with Jammit! Isolate or remove an instrument from the mix & jam with the original multi-tracks!

And now: Line 6 and Jammit have partnered to create the ultimate guitar jam-along experience for iPhone® and iPad®. With the Line 6 Mobile In interface and Jammit app, you can immerse yourself in your favorite artists’ original recordings—and play along with incredibly authentic guitar tones.

What is Jammit?
The audio for the individual instruments and voices heard on your favorite songs was recorded separately before being blended into the final mix. These original multi-track recordings are the building blocks for every popular song released over the past 50 years and the same authentic tracks that we use in Jammit.
Yes, Jammit actually allows you to isolate or remove an instrument from the mix, so you can jam with a band’s original master tracks! In addition to instrument isolation, Jammit’s scrolling scores, section looping, variable slow mode and onboard recorder let you experience music like never before. Whether you’d like to emulate every nuance of an incredible player or just take in the musical genius of a great performance, Jammit software allows you to find out what your favorite music is really made of.

Basic Jammit Features:

-True Instrument Isolation: Jammit uses the original multi-track master recordings allowing you to rebalance the mix so you can hear every detail of the original performance.

-Notation and Tablature: The elite team of Jammit transcribers use the original isolated multi-track recordings to give you transcriptions with a degree of accuracy found nowhere else but Jammit.

-Advanced Tools: Use the variable slow down mode and section looping to focus on difficult musical passages.

-Recording: Whether you’re emulating the original part or coming up with your own, you can capture your performance using Jammit’s record feature.
-Line 6 Amp Modeling:

When a Line 6 Mobile In is plugged into your iPad or iPhone, it unlocks the Line 6 amp modeling engine that is built in to the latest version of Jammit. Simply plug your guitar into the Mobile In, launch Jammit and load one of the songs in your library. There are two ways to use the amp modeling in Jammit : Auto or Manual mode.

Auto mode: On select songs (see the complete list of eligible songs below), patches have been created to automatically make your guitar sound like the guitar on the original recording. If the tone changes in the song, so does your guitar, so you can concentrate on playing your guitar, not your pedal board!

Manual mode: Press “manual” on the Line 6 user interface (selecting the Line 6 icon under the USER channel title), and scroll through the available preset patches. In manual mode, the sound patch that you select will remain throughout the song.

How to Get Started on Jammit:

1) Download the free app to your iOS 5 iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.
2) Select the “Try It Out” button to download the 30 second demo songs or…
3) Sign up for your FREE Jammit account. Doing this will allow you to download any purchases that you make onto a maximum of three Jammit compatible devices.
4) Browse the In App Jammit Store or the store at Jammit.com for songs you’d like to purchase.
5) Purchases made through In App Purchase or at Jammit.com can be downloaded instantly to your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch when you sign into your Jammit account on your device.
6) Load the song from the library page in the Jammit app and enjoy!
